Main Street merchants will also offer discounted goods and Fair specials in front of their shops, creating a festive and colorful, people-watching event that will surely celebrate the arrival of the Fall season.

Lisa Scails, Executive Director of the Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut, adds "There's lots of excitement already from participating vendors and merchants about this event. We are pleased to present this festive event with CityCenter Danbury for the community and visitors, and most importantly, we're planning lots of fun."
